All the Ingredients for Kendrick’s Wooly Mantis
Kendrick’s Wooly Mantis is a shrimp for every flat. It’s a simple pattern with the movement and characteristics regarded as shrimpy to redfish, bonefish and permit. Anyone who hunts any of these 3 species should have a bug of this variation or another in their box. The standout feature of the Wooly Mantis is the XS506H jig hook which has proven superior in sticking inferior mouths, fish that feed on the bottom. The Kendrick’s Wooly Mantis Materials Kit sets you up to tie this fly in tan and olive, the ideal colors for clear or off-color water.
Not included in the kit is Mason Hard Type Nylon or RIO Hard Mono in 20lb for a weedguard, or the markers to bar the tail.
